I think it would finish a few off tbh. Can you imagine if Sunderland had to change their name? Look at the divided opinions the naming of our current stadium caused. There'd be hell on. Tottenham (or West Ham) would commit commercial and professional suicide if they chose to do that. It would be the end of the club. A club the size of Wimbledon just about got away with it when they became MK Dons. For a Premier League team? No.

It wouldn't go down at all well that's for sure. And I very much doubt the majority of Spurs fans would feel any different. Traditions are a big part of the game and to most clubs, too. I guess there would be people who would say that a name is just a name and all that and that the benefits of moving to a stadium like the Olympic one are far better than staying at the Lane but if I was a Spurs supporter I would've turned down the idea of moving grounds if it came with a clause of changing the club's name. You reckon the supporters will have something to say about it ? I like to think they will be asked along the way if it comes to that.

You're born alone, you die alone.  Anything in between is make believe.

So West Ham it is then.

What's this about Leyton Orient being the big loser in all of this ? What am I missing ?

They are the 'local' club to the stadium.
